In the installment airing Tuesday, Jan. 28, Annie (Shenae Grimes) dreams up an alterna world in which she never left her small-town life in Kansas. In that reality, she’s engaged to her high school sweetheart — Zylka’s prepster Jason — and her brother Dixon is a hip-hop superstar who’s estranged from his family.

Take a peek at Zylka’s 90210 return below, then hit the comments with your thoughts on Annie’s alternate fate.

    I never connected Chris Zylka to that character! He is a really strange actor! First I completely disLiked him on the SC than he got better and I believed him loving Fate aka Phoebe Tonkin!

    Let see if he is better here. XD

  2. J says:

    So he didn’t shave his hair for AHS, but he shaved it anyway?

    • Amanda says:

      I think there is a lot more to that story than just simply not shaving his head. He’s done it for numerous roles.

      • dude says:

        Agreed. I don’t even know what role that’d fit into on AHS.

        • Amanda says:

          The only role I can honestly think of is Pepper but I don’t know when that role was cast/changed if that…

        • Sam says:

          He was supposed to be Daniel, the mute, who was a part in Lana’s conversion therapy. The role was supposed to be bigger and Zylka was to appear in two episodes but after he dropped out, the part was reduced.

    • steveo says:

      The weirdest thing is when the character he was supposed to play showed up on AHS, he had shoulder-length hair.

  4. Krissy says:

    I love him but not for annie ! I love the guy in the wheelchair he is so funny and So hot!! Love him!!

  5. Jared says:

    I’ve watched every season of 90210 and I don’t even remember this character at all. Was he in the pilot or something?

  6. S says:

    Jared, he was in season one. Naomi brought him to California when she was trying to either destroy Annie’s life, or keep her away from Ethan? He was in their pool, I remember, and got out and talked to them for his first scene. Is this the same episode Ty is supposed to randomly be in?

  7. robinepowell says:

    I used to watch the show back then, but I don’t recognize him. I guess he wasn’t that memorable.

  8. charles Watson says:

    Love Chris Zylka in anything and love 90210, looking forward to the reunion.

  9. omar says:

    Love 9O21O !

  10. Maria Flor de Luna says:

    I remember him. His relationship with Annie didn’t survive after she relocated to Kansas. Jason, when he made his debut, acted more of a guy with no brains and allowed himself to be used in Naomi’s vengeance.

    And oh how I miss that rivalry going on between Naomi and Annie. The peak was definitely during 2×02 during Teddy’s yacht party.

    I really can’t wait for Lannie <3
